New Delhi: A day after Imran Khan-led Pakistan government claimed that it has taken control of the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) campus in Bahawalpur, country’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Hussain asserted that the action against the mosque has no connection with deadly Pulwama terror attack that left 40 CRPF jawans martyred.

Furthermore, Hussain claimed that Bahawalpur mosque is doing charity by teaching 700 students inside it. He said that Punjab Government in Pakistan will take media-persons to the Bahawalpur mosque so that they can witness how the mosque is carrying out non-profitable work there.

Pakistan I&B Minister also alleged that that India’s allegations against the mosque is nothing more than a ‘propaganda’. Hussain retweeted the video of his statement from his personal Twitter account.


Earlier on Friday, the Pakistan government had claimed to have taken over the control of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) headquarters in Bahawalpur amid pressure to act against the perpetrators of the dastardly Pulwama terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir on February 14.

The action came eight days after the 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in Pulwama after a JeM suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into a bus in the convoy of the security forces.

The official Twitter account of Pakistan government revealed that the action was decided at the National Security Committee meeting that was held on Thursday under the leadership of PM Imran Khan. “The Government of Punjab has taken over the control of a campus comprising Madressatul Sabir and Jama-e-Masjid Subhanallah in Bahawalpur,” Govt of Pakistan tweeted quoting a spokesman of the Ministry of Interior.
